Full description for Madonna of the Toast
All over the world people cherish different beliefs. Regardless if these beliefs are rooted in religion or popular culture, a true believer cannot be swayed. So, when Mother Teresa surfaces on a cinnamon bun, the manifestation turns into an event that attracts global attention. "Madonna of the Toast" documents what happens when religious and secular icons appear on objects such as pancakes, potato chips and cows. From highly publicized (Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese) to previously unpublicized instances of these visitations (Jar Jar Binks on a shed door, Jesus on a mandolin), all of the objects featured in "Madonna of the Toast" exemplify the power of visual communication.
